First off it isn't reform but amnesty but the article is worth posting anyway.

"Republican leaders in the U.S. House made clear there is one thing they intend to do with the comprehensive immigration reform passed with great pageantry by the Senate Thursday: Ignore it".

Let's hope it's DOA in the House.

This is one bill where Congress's inertia will be a good thing.

Probably not! Which of course means De-Facto amnesty continues, and the poor guy who runs from the GOP in 2016 has it still on the table.

Reform? Yes
Amnesty? NO
The bill needs to be scraped and a step by step approach needs to be enbrassed.

Well, I would rather have a continued de-facto amnesty than a real one. The latter would be much more devastating to our country and its citizens in so many ways.

Hopefully not because it's going to destroy our immigration system and devalue citizenship if it passes.
